Introduce pregnancy osteopathic treatment

A pregnancy without pain!

Child-bearing is such a special moment in a woman’s life. Enormous physical, hormonal and physiological changes take place in a relatively short period of time. 

Osteopathy can help relieve from numerous pregnancy aches, such as low back/sciatic pain, pelvic & groin pain. It can also be helpful for shallow breathing, gastric reflux. 

Those symptoms are very common in the gravid state, but this shouldn’t mean it’s normal to suffer! Expecting a baby is a unique and special experience. The body has to adapt to carry up an extra 20lbs!

Osteopaths use gentle techniques to treat symptoms such as joint mobilizations, muscle energy techniques & many others. Those techniques are perfectly safe at all stages of pregnancy. Mother & child safety is obviously our primary concern. 

Our objective is to improve your quality of life, thus allowing the mother to enjoy the 9 months to come:

  • Improve the chances of a straight forward birth. 
  • Start labour after term delivery.
  • Ease pregnancy aches at any stage. 
  • Teach your partner how to reduce your muscles aches. 
  • Personnalized advices for home comfort. 

Number of sessions

We recommand 1 session for every trimester of pregnancies (3 in total), as the symptoms will vary from one trimester to another. 

A post-natal consultation can also help you recover faster after the birth. Your body will go through a new process of going back to “non pregnant” state.  Osteopathy assists the mother being comfortable again (during walking, bending and seating), to fully enjoy your new life as a mother.
